Sotomayor off radar

We haven't heard a peep about wise Latina Sonia Sotomayor since she joined the Supreme Court.

One would think, given the huge amount of publicity that surrounded her nomination, that there might have been just one followup article about how Sotomayor is wowing the other justices by coming to better conclusions, thanks to the richness of her experiences, than the white male justices who haven't lived that life.

Then again, given that the Supremes reversed 80% of the Sotomayor decisions they ruled on before she joined them, perhaps they remain distinctly un-wowed.

Which might explain the news blackout.
